     Heh, heh, that's a good one....

     Anywhere along the electromagnetic spectrum, I would think.  Microwaves
(not visible, but still warm), radio waves (likewise; note that in a sphere
with this sort of sun, a Deeyo is much less effective due to interference),
infrared (infravision-using creatures would be able to see clearly as if it
were normal daylight), the entire visible spectrum from red to violet, to
ultraviolet (creatures would have very dark skins to protect vs. this),
X-rays (ouch!), gamma rays ("Hulk smash!"), and cosmic rays ("It's
clobberin' time!").
     Also, since Radiance is the junction of the Positive material and Fire,
undead probably wouldn't like to be out during daylight (hmmm ... is it a
particular frequency of light that is so bad for undead, or just the
Positive connection?).

     Hmmm ... makes sense.

     Dragons, dragon turtles, some new kinds of giants, busty coeds, etc.

     Hmmm ... do you know where you can get these modules?  Or are they
shareware?
